I was wondering if anyone here knew of a program for burning cd's that
supports multi-session better than cdrecord? I've read the readme for
multi-session, and it's pretty ugly. I'm also a bit spoiled from the old
windoze days of "import last session". Are there any linux progs that do
that? I tried xcdroast, but it doesn't do it.

Second question. I recently upgraded from debian 2.0 to 2.1 and my / partition
went from 21% to 76% (It's a 100mb partition). My /usr and /home partitions
are 3gb and 700mb respectively. Any idea what swelled my root partition so  
much? I emptied out my /var/cache/apt/archives (actually had to link it to
the /usr partition because it was filling up). But still haven't seen anything
that seems like it might be the cause of the sudden swell. Thanks!

Take a look around in /var, especially /var/lib.  My /var/lib is 29M.  15M
of that is /var/lib/dpkg (you can't do much about that, of course).

1. couple of questions (well, more than a couple)

Hello, I have a few questions relating to Linux.

First off, i have a linux kernel version 1.0.9, and i would like to upgrade.
Is there a HOWTO out there describing how to do this, and where to get
patches to upgrade the kernel?  If not, could someone email me some
ftp addresses and some instructions?

Next, I connect to my SLIP account using dip.  Think is, dip dials
my modem using pulse tone.  Its not really a problem, but i was
wondering if theres a way to make it dial using touch tone.

And finally (for now :) I've heard of a new version of linux coming
out with some kind of xwindows thingy that allows you to run
MS windows apps in X.  Last I heard it was in alpha phase.  Has it
gotten out of alpha testing, and if so, does anybody know where
i can get it? (ftp or mail order software house)
